Paris Hilton recently appeared on Egyptian actor Ramez Galal’s prank show, “Ramez in Control“ (“Ramez Wakel Elgaw”) and was subjected to a terrifying hoax.
A YouTube video from an episode of “Ramez in Control“ shows Hilton in Dubai for the opening of a new hotel. Midway through the episode, the celebrity is invited on a jet for a 15-minute aerial tour of the city with Galal and other passengers. A few minutes after the plane is in the air, the pilot begins doing stunts that make it appear as if the plane is crashing.
In the video, Hilton and the other passengers begin to panic and scream as an alarm goes off and the plane appears to plummet. One passenger opens up the jet’s side door and tosses a man out as Hilton screams “No” and “I don’t want to jump.”
The faked crash footage — which is very disturbing to watch — goes on for more than five minutes as Hilton continues to scream and cry, looking genuinely terrified. After the plane lands safely, Galal tells Hilton he is an Egyptian actor and that the crash was just a prank. It appears Hilton wasn’t in on the joke, as she seems surprised and confused before yelling at the host, “I’m going to kill you.”
“I almost thought I was going to die,” she says, crying. “That’s been my biggest fear my whole life, dying in a plane.”
It’s unclear when this episode of “Ramez in Control” originally aired, but Galal has pulled this prank — and others — during the past four Ramadans. Another video posted to YouTube includes a preview of various people involved in the plane crash hoax.
The show faced cancelation earlier this year, but not because of how upsetting the pranks appear to be for the show’s victims. According to website Albawaba, Egypt’s prosecutor general filed a lawsuit against Galal for reportedly “stealing the show’s idea from Prosecutor General Ashraf Atef.”
Previously, the host has tricked guests into believing they were being eaten by live sharks in the ocean, so clearly, Galal has no limits.
The Huffington Post could not immediately reach Hilton’s reps for comment.
